there are several different authors with the name Mary Baker. Not sure which one you are trying to isolate. The query will at least remove Mary Baker Eddy:

You were kind enough to respond to this post in December but I wasn't able to read the reply until now.
My question was about searching problems in general and the "Mary Baker" search was just one example of a bigger issue: 1. how to narrow a search so it doesn't yield hundreds of results, many of which are not relevant to the original search word or words and 2. how do the newer filters you installed work?
Thanks for your help.

the facets on the left side of a results page can filter for those facets.

to learn how to use search limiters you'd need to search the web for guidance.
